I have a Dell Studio 15 hooked to a RCA 56 HDTV
The laptop has HDMI, and VGA outputs only
The TV has DVI-D, Component, Composite, S-video, and the Coaxial inputs only
I am trying to hook my laptop up with a VGA to DVI cable.
I hook the two up, no picture.
I restart the machine (some say that you have to boot with the VGA plugged in), no picture.
I hit Fn+F1(brings up a toggle between: Laptop only, Duplicate Displays, Extend Displays, and Projector only) I chose Duplicate Displays. The laptop screen goes to a 4:3 display, but still no TV display. I also go into my graphics card properties to the place it will let you choose option for the displays, and the only one listed is the Laptop.
Its like the laptop doesn't see that the VGA cord is plugged into anything, or the VGA output is not working
Please help me figure this out.
